The front of both the models gets redesigned bumpers and neat horizontal lines but without missing out on the famous Octavia visage. The updated logo which is part of the new corporate language now sits on the bonnet leaving the new grill fully visible. The side profile is lowered and dynamic with raked rear window and muscular silhouette. The rear-end is a typical Skoda with neat proportions but without missing out on its function.

Various technological perks borrowed from bigger Volkswagen models are now on offer in the RS such as adaptive cruise control, automated parking assist, KESSY (keyless-entry-start and exit-system), new leather trims and touch screen information system.

In a nutshell “I am an automotive lover” from my very first conscious day of childhood. From Ford’s Model T to Deltawing, I love them all. I really don't have specific brand to follow, whether it’s a tiny Fiat 500 or a meaty Saleen S7, I love them all, because they justify the soul purpose for which they are built for. But still I have a soft corner for anything with a PORSCHE logo. Currently, I m pursuing my B.Tech in Automobile trade and want to build a career in journalism.
